ISBN 9789502407531, published by Editorial Albatros in 2007, Buenos Aires, Argentina, paperback, about 14 by 21.5 cm., or 5.5 by 8.5 inches, 158 pages, text is in Spanish, good color photographs of the 100 species covered in this book, they are generally about half page size and often have black and white drawings or photos to illustrate key points about some of the shells and there are other color photographs in the text too.
This copy is a reprint of the first edition and is identical to it except for a new cover. It also is given a new name, " Cien Caracoles Argentinos," to "100 Caracoles Argentinos". The book is one of only a few I know of that cover the marine mollusks of Argentina. Since this book has been around since 1997, it is surprising that this is only the second copy that we've ever seen here. While it is far from a complete guide to the shells from this region, it shows an overview of many the marine mollusks we most often see from this region. The book is in Spanish. This book was part of a series that covers the natural history of the Argentinian region.This is a used copy but it can pass as a new book.
